a very dynamic period in terms of development and change within san francisco. so the projections we have had the benefit of the last three years, though they held up. they may be based on information that is increasingly going to become less accurate. to look at housing developments. to look at in-migration and out-migration patterns. it's good practice for the district to refresh that analysis. and had happens to come at a very important time for this discussion and the board's deliberation. >> you raised an interesting point, to inform this discussion. are you talking about the feeder patterns or the need or desire for another middle school? >> right, i think all of the above. one question what will be the demand for middle schools over time? we have from our last demographic study an expectation that in about three to four years we will start to see additional, a little bit of a bubble additional demand for sixth grade to eight grade seats. >> when you say bubble, you mean increase? >> an increase. we are seeing this in our elementary population. and not that everyone will remain stat
will change dramatically. plants and animals will be forced to adapt, move, or go extinct. already, the distribution and life cycles of plants, animals and fish, are shifting in response to changes in earth's climate. in the north sea, warming water has driven commercially important fish such as cod, farther north to colder and deeper waters. in turn, more exotic, warmer-water fish have pushed into the range being vacated. the northward shift of the boundary coincides with a rise in temperature of nearly 2 degrees in north sea waters between 1977 and 2001. if the trend continues, atlantic cod will no longer be able to live in the north sea by 2080. the heavy pressure our industrialized society puts on earth drives climate change. whole ecosystems are modified, forcing species to fight for survival in different surroundings. if we understand the rapid changes our activities force the natural world to respond to, we'll learn to make better decisions today that will determine earth's climate tomorrow, and in turn, nature's services on which all of us depend. >>> this week on "moyers &
of defense, but no one's talking about how we fundamentally have to change our philosophy of military compensation, benefits and the size of the force to come to grips with the cost of an all-volunteer army. of course at a minimum we should also dramatically shift and reduce resources away from the vast nuclear weapons stockpile and the three redundant delivery systems which we haven't used in 68 years and probably never will. we have 10 times more nuclear firepower than we need for deterrence. its pasttime -- symbol of the cold war and save hundreds of billions of dollars at no risk to american security. it's time for congress and the administration to work meaningfully for agriculture reform, to get more support for america's farmers and ranchers at a fraction of the cost. we should reform the outrageous, inefficient and unproductive crop insurance program. we should restore investments in nutrition, conservation, research and marketing that will make a difference for most farmers and ranchers, improve long-term productivity and support value-added agriculture. this saves money in t
people. we were set up as an american institution to work on a broad mandate of tackling the changes that are faced by advanced industrialized societies. that is a broad mandate. we work with europe and the united states and we work on how europe and the united states can work together on the major world challenges like climate change and economic trade and development, just a number of issues the program i run goes back to the early days in the first 20 years when we were primarily a grantmaker making grants to low-cal practitioners and policymakers. i started this program about four years, five years ago now, i think, time flies, to really bring in members of our marshall memorial fellowship network of which david chiu is one of our alumni. some of our past grantees and also the next crop of practitioners and local civic leaders who are really looking to change their home communities by looking abroad or looking to other cities to see what other cities are doing well and how that might be imported back home or translated back home. so the comparative dom particular policy program w
approved are the new eld strapped aders and that is going to be a fundamental change and not just how we refer to the professioncy levels but that is a body of work that is embedded through ut the day throughout all of the con content areas and there is a great deal of work that needs to be part of the our road map moving forward. >> so could we find another place or way to have more detail on this? or maybe the opportunity to actually have a discussion about this? >> i would think that say curriculum committee item. >> so to say that we have already slated moving toward the common core implementation with the focus on the humanities at the may 6th committee. i don't expect a lot of answers but a road map in the direction that the district is pursuing will be discussed. >> i think that commissioners you will be getting more information and we are planning to be at the next board of education meeting to give you an update on the allow plan and so as you begin to see all of these different pieces and these different plans, coming together, you will see how this is related to the work as a
progress. >> we want to change the life of kenya. our main goal is jobs, jobs, jobs. >> polls but the two neck-and- neck making a second round of voting likely. >> and now we go to our correspondent standing by at a polling station and joins us from nairobi. how concerned are people out kenyatta has been indicted for his alleged role in 2007? >> people perceive the charges are not correct . they are saying that they voted for him. they say that they're going to show that kenya has been an behind both of them. if we vote for them, the charges have to be dropped. >> there have been some reports of violence. tell us more about the mood on election day. >> it is still quite peaceful. they're trying to make it a successful day. they're referring to the violence last time of people who really wanted peace. assaad and man on the street painting on the side of the road. that is actually the mood. calls are still going on. the national election commissioner of the promised everyone in the polling station on the bonds tell now, 5:00 in nairobi, they will be able to cast their vote. >> what role doe
everyone more time, i think we short changed chanel silas on that national anthem. [applause] she actually stood in sergeant jerry darcy who laid world series fame and lore was going to sing, and has the same cold that everyone has, and channel showed up. i want to thank the families and friends that are here, and dignitaries. and the board of supervisors who are represented. supervisor campos and weiner, great friends of the department. and commissioner loftus, needs no introduction. and willie brown, tremendous friend of the police department. i don't know if we have been blessed to have a mayor more supportive in our hiring plan, than mayor lee. i appreciate everyone working together to support us here in san francisco. now to the matter at hand. we are privileged to be here of the 56 sworn officers that are sworn to the rank of sergeant, captain and deputy of chief. in all endeavors leadership is critical to success. as we move into the first half of 2013, solid and sound leadership as commissioner loftus spoke us is critical to the success of the san francisco police department that c
of these parks is really changing the trend would be very useful. >> mr. general manager. >> sure, supervisor. again, we are not particularly defensive about the data. >> no >> it is sort of helpful for us and we do guide it. >> i think that district nine, you know, in every district is a little different and the parks are a little different and each park has a unique set of challenges and one of the more encouraging stats are over all cleanliness and district nine remains as one of highest rated districts and i think that the over all scores were about 11, 12 or 88 percent, and while it was a two percent drop off from 10-11 it is up from where we started in 56 and 67. so i think that we are keeping an eye on it but one of the things that we need to understand is that these scores are snapshots in time as i think that they explained. and i would be concerned if there were a continuing downward trend. i think that 9 seems to be sort of kind of right there for the most part. garfield has its particular set of challenges as i think that you know and off a little bit too and sometimes, higher per
to occur as you develop a code change to be able to do some of the lower interest loans, so i am going to try to see if there is a way that i can communicate with that without jumping forward past your process of coming up with policy and taking it to the board of supervisors. i think that anything that comes from the controller's office has a lot of weight in terms of future financial policies. any exacting any change is not really exacting, but encouraging any changes to occur with the mayor's office and our office and the controller's office and so that i think there is a lot of possibility of what we will come out of the work that they are doing in terms of the reserves. >> any questions? >> any questions for the deputy? >> no? >> oh,, yeah, commissioner mar. >> just a quick question on it. >> if the city pretty much up in terms of their testing in terms of for the electrical inspecters or do we have a list or we waiting for them to do the tests? >> so this is the majority of the tests that we are doing now, all have to do with position-based testing, so we have to work with them a
and certainly issues surrounding climate change and other issues will be addressed, and this is something that at this point is conjukt url in my opinion and even if we have to look at the worse case scenario if it does occur to the limits that these people were talking about, but we have only the availability of the last few decades to be able to monitor subtle changes and we can't find out what happened 500 years ago or a thousand years ago and we have to take that course, and the other thing i really liked is the idea of the parking is diminishing to the 630 which i assume is mostly players and personnel like that that have to park close to the facility, and it's covered and hidden so that makes a lot of sense to me to put that in there, and it would be no additional curb cut as pointed out, so i am very much in favor, but i think the public makes a good point. they want to hear about what the impacts will be. i think it's perfectly appropriate to be on the waterfront. as you know the waterfront in san francisco it's been 125 years -- maybe not that long and had the present embarca
the new energy secretary. i heard him described as pro-nuke, pro-fracking, but alarmed by climate change. those are tough things to reconcile. >> pro-fracking because natural gas is a bridge fuel to a more renewable future whether it is more nuclear, more advanced than doubles, so it is actually not in conflict. some environmentalists are not happy because he is pro-fracking. but others are okay. a new administrator named today, everybody seems to say she is a good listener, certainly more enthused about her. melissa: as somebody who drives a car cause i feel better about him? >> i do not think is going to make much difference. melissa: all right. thank you so much. time for today's fuel gauge report. futures hitting fresh lows for the year. citing concerns about falling global demand for crude. oil down for a third session. and transocean boardwalks restarted dividend for shareholders. carl icahn has been campaigning for the move. beginning in june, transocean would pay a dividend every quarter. and texas pitching retail gas business. the company said it will help expand the presence in
said you voted -- visited three different trips did you sense a change of attitude or frustration levels? if you can apply to yourself or how the incites change. >> in june there was a sense of survivor euphoria. a great openness. maybe not fully comprehending what had happened. you can only take in so much loss at a time but i returned in september and a large force seven typhoon came up the coast. not much in the news here and usually the typhoon's go to the west side of japan. but this one came blasting up the coast. all the rice farmers i know, the land was covered in three and 4 feet of bodies and debris and boats, not we wanted to grow food but they were donated swale and maneuver and just growing winter vegetables because they had to have something to eat. just trying to survive. when the typhoon came, it completely flooded everything with that was planted, even many temporary houses where people were moved after they got out of the evacuation centers then they had to be evacuated again. but it went through the bottom floor of the store so they were repairing their houses.
cost expected range from $5 to $7 per hour. >> muni says the changes will make more parking spots available and, help reduce congestion, by discouraging circle in around the ballpark for parking. >> as you might imagine drivers are not buying that. >> it is just a bigger pain in the butt. >> it is annoying to have to pay more. >> the price of the ferry ride it also increase from $9 to $11 this season. the golden gate bridge district scheduled to hold a public hearing on the fares increase proposal on thursday. >> if approved, the new rates would take effect by the start of the season. >> 7 06. as we go to break let us check with george to give up their of the commute. >> thank you darya. we have been keeping an eye on the nimitz freeway were lanes were reconfigured over the weekend. >> this is around fifth with a bite out is being rebuilt. >>vi>vidact. >> we are keeping an eye on it. current conditions are good but there is the possibility of an accident occurring at the site. if you are driving be prepared for those changes. we will take a break in the kron 4 [ male announcer ] s
night life. we've molded our night life. and we've amended and changed the process to control our night life and to manage our night life so that it is respectful of the environment that's growing in the residential community. i would think that that same logical approach could be applied to this impact fee discussion. i find it very hard to believe with the costs of housing on the market today that we can't find a way to increase an impact fee to replace and makeup for a transportation fee so that we can have both. if you think about a worker in a night life establishment, they both have to have affordable housing and they have to have transportation or they won't be able to work. and we're talking now about 50,000 people in our work force in san francisco. so, it's a major impact to balance these and to bring them forward together. so, supervisors, thank you, and again, special thanks to supervisor kim for your extraordinary outreach and once again bringing people together. thank you. >> thank you, mr. allen. >>> good afternoon, supervisors. my name is bernadette [speaker not understo
